A Wednesday meeting could be of interest to workers at the Y-12 National Security Complex, as well as former workers and survivors of former employees, because it will discuss a petition that could benefit them.
The Advisory Board on Radiation and Worker Health will meet from 8:15 a.m.-6 p.m. Wednesday at the DoubleTree by Hilton at 215 South Illinois Avenue in Oak Ridge.
There will be a public comment period from 6-7 p.m. (The public comment period will conclude at 7 p.m. or following the final call for public comment, whichever comes first. If you plan to comment, please be prepared to comment at 6 p.m.)
The public meeting will include face-to-face communication, as well as the public comment period, an advisory said.
The agenda can be found at https://www.cdc.gov/niosh/ocas/pubmtgs.html under the Meetings under the August 2019 tab. Presentations and other petition documents will be posted before the meeting and available at the meeting, the advisory said.
The advisory lists a discussion from 4:30-6 p.m. of the Y-12 SEC (Special Exposure Cohort) Petition #250 (Oak Ridge, Tennessee; 1977-1994)
Participant Code: 9933701
